Range Anxiety Mitigation
     Range Anxiety Causes
• Confusing Marketing
   Real World Range vs. Label Range
   Real World Driving 50 to 70% of Label Range
• Inaccurate Range Remaining Displays
   Constantly Changing Numbers
   Unexpected Drop to Reserve/Empty
• Drivers Typically Have No Idea of Actual
  Distance to Destinations
   Also No Means to Identify the Point of No Return
    to Home Base
   Impact of Range Anxiety
• Reduces EV Appeal to New Customers
• Limits EV Driver Enjoyment
• Precipitates More Use of Household
  ICE Vehicles for Some EV Capable
• Conveys Image of a Less Than
  Dependable Product
• Limits EV Sales
        Deficiencies of Today’s
            Range Displays
• Calculations Based On Instantaneous
   Battery State of Charge
   Vehicle Average Energy Consumption
• No Comprehension of the Effects of:
     Road Grade
     Mean Elevation
     Temperature
     Wind Direction and Velocity

“Energy Manager”™
• The driver will select the starting point and
• The Energy Manager application will
  calculate best route and display the trip from
  Sacramento to Auburn, CA with changing
  graphic display of energy and distance.
• The Energy Manager application will use
  vehicle, road, environmental data, altitude,
  wind, and temperature to create a driver
  friendly visual range display.
• The visual display will contain a two
  dimensional polygon indicating the range for
  possible travel distance in all directions

• The driver selects a location on the map to
  start, then selects the destination with
  mouse, keyboard or touchscreen
• The Energy Manager application calculates
  the route.
• Driver clicks on “Plot Trip” to begin trip
• The “Energy Manager”™ application then
  begins by displaying the route and the
  distances which the vehicle can travel with
  the available charge.

The route will be calculated
      and displayed

• The Energy Manger™ algorithm will re-scale,
  change direction and redraw the route (A-B)
  with a new range polygon.
• In addition, charging points along the route
  will be displayed.

• Selecting “Reverse” and “Plot Trip” will
  start the return trip.
• Notice when the new trip starts, the energy
  usage will significantly less due generally
  traveling downhill.
Click “Reverse” and
   then “Plot Trip”
• Note that the energy used in the second
  round trip is less compared to the first
  largely due to the drop in elevation during
  the trip.
